A story about
Gimmel wakes up early each morning to daven (pray) and then loves to fulfil the very important Mitzvah of taking care of its health. Gimmel has 2 long legs that it uses to go on walks. Gimmel is very careful to take care of its body, by going walking and keeping safe by watching out for any gaps in the path. Gimmel is very lucky to have a gap between its legs, which it uses as a reminder to watch out for gaps while it goes on walks. If it’s very hot Gimmel will pick up a healthy fruit flavoured Glidah after its walk. Why does it love Glidah? Because it begins with the letter Gimmel!
